K-3 GRADES have one primary teacher for all subjects, and has one main classroom. Music and Art are integrated into the academic subjects. The students join the Grade School and High School students for break times, and on occasion Physical Education modules such as hiking excursions, biking, volleyball and other suitable sports.
GRADES 4-8 follow the same schedule of class times with the High school classes, and move between classrooms depending on the subject and teacher. For example Language Arts, Math and Science in one classroom (generally the morning subjects); then Art, Graphics in another classroom with the computers; and Music in the Sanctuary. Between each class there is a three minute period to change books in their lockers, but often the Grade school students have a 10 minute play time outside between classes.
Language Arts, Science, Math, Art, Graphics, and Music are all compulsory subjects in the Grade School years at the "I AM" School. Physical Education and Fitness are also compulsory, and taken with together with the High School students. The Academic subjects are often combined with school trips and visits, whether to the Science Works Museum in Ashland, or a weekend to the Oregon Coast and the Redwood Forests.
